The utility perspective on electrification and demand management

What can we expect to happen in the short term with electrification? Join Krista Langthorne (Manager – Business Development) and Stephanie Daley (Manager – Energy Conservation) as they introduce a joint 5-year plan between Newfoundland Power and Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro for electrification and conservation and demand management in the province.


Planning for the long-term: what can we learn from Norway?

Planes, trains, and automobiles – Energi Norge has a vision for Norway to become ‘the world’s first all-electric society’. Join Kristian Blindheim (Project Manager – Electrification) as he explains the rationale and strategy behind this vision, and learn a little bit about what kind of long-term planning is needed for Newfoundland and Labrador to meet its electrification potential.


The outsider’s perspective on clean energy opportunities for Newfoundland and Labrador

Our province’s clean energy opportunities extend beyond the electricity system. The following presentation is by Mark Zacharias (Special Advisor) from Clean Energy Canada – a climate and clean energy program at Simon Fraser University. It takes the idea of electrification and expands upon it into a broader clean energy discussion, introducing concepts that will be explored more completely throughout the conference.


Hydrogen 101 and the possibilities for Newfoundland and Labrador

Join Kieran Hanley (Executive Director with NEIA) as he introduces hydrogen, its current applications, its importance in the world’s pursuit of net zero emissions, and what all of this means in the Newfoundland and Labrador context. Could hydrogen production unlock our wealth of renewable energy resources, and grow to be a major new industry for the province?


Learning from Iceland’s hydrogen production pilot project

In 2019 Landsvirkjun Power started the development of hydro-powered hydrogen production pilot project about 70 km outside of Reykjavík. Join Úlfar Linnet (Business Development – Landsvirkjun Power) and Chad Butler (VP Business Development – Growler Energy) as they discuss the project and the potential application of similar projects in NL.


Specialized knowledge of federal programs and services

The Clean Growth Hub is a single-window resource for clean technology developers and adopters across the country interested in accessing supports. Join Allison Christie (Co-Director) and Philip Pietersma (Co-Director) as they introduce the hub and the services that they can provide to businesses like yours.


Dedicated to Canadian innovators who want to start, grow and get to market

Innovative Solutions Canada leverages the scale of the federal government’s procurement power to fund research and development and help firms test product and service prototypes in real-life settings. Join Alexandra MacKenzie (Communications and Outreach Officer) to learn more about this organization from Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada.


The steward for the Canadian environmental workforce across all industries

ECO Canada not only trains and certifies professionals, but it also helps to identify and address labour market gaps. Join Jennifer Bjorkman (Client Aquisition Manager) and Ailsa Popilian (Team Lead, Marketing Communications) as they explore the environmental jobs outlook and highlight labour supports available to business.
